UNREST

I woke up today,
Woke,
Hardly any words,
Needed to be spoken,
The world was active,
The work is being done,
Strangely,
My mind was not at ease,
For I am smart enough to know,
Reality is not always what it seems,
We must fight,
Change must happen,
I can’t wait for tomorrow,
For today is right in our face,
So why wait?
Protest,
Looting,
Shooting,
Recruiting,
I am not in the mood,
I need to see documents,
I need to see new laws,
Now,
I am not with the shits,
I need something legit,
Pain been on my mind,
I need to get something off my chest,
Your knee is on my neck,
I kneel to make things correct,
Are you here now,
For the clout,
Are you here now,
To open your mouth,
Until them,
I don’t believe everything,
I am seeing,
I am unrested.

I TEAR #Unfinishstories

I tear,
I cry,
Inside,
From missing you,
Can’t help the emotion,
Losing sanity,
Wanting to fight my way,
Back into your arms,
Even if it is to be hurt again,
I pen my love,
Certain,
Future and past tense,
I cry for you,
I miss you,
I can’t forget,
I don’t want to,
It is everything,
Not just the good,
But everything,
And how I felt,
Being with you,
….

Tear: pull or rip (something) apart or to pieces with force.

CLOSE #UnfinishedStories

The last time,
The last time I felt,
Your warm embrace,
It put a smile,
On my face,
As it does,
Everyday,
Being so close to you,
After all these years knowing you,
Learning consistently,
Agreeing and not agreeing,
Spending endless nights,
Talking,
Walking on cloud 9,
Never caring about the time,
Knowing you are mine,
And I am yours,
Our closeness,
Developed,
Blossomed,
Widen,
Deepened,
…..

Close: a short distance away or apart in space or time.
